The Magic Knight RayEarth Frequently Asked Questions

p a r t 1 #151; n a m e o r i g i n s

This is (what I hope is) a comprehensive list of all nouns that appear in the anime or the manga. but it’s not complete. If you have any clue for missing names (whether it be here and listed with question marks, or not on the list altogether) please contact me so I can add it in.

This is NOT called the Car Names List, because not all of the names are car-related. =)

All names will be spelled the way I spelled it in my scripts. All the car names in boldface are those confirmed to be the way the dealers spelt/romanized their names.

The credit that shall be awarded for finding correlations go to:

Voice Memo, Daryl Yang, Kazataka Aiso, Carlos Norberto Ferreira, Gabriel Pinz�n, Mitsuru Aoki, Yasuhiro Yamamoto, Wynne Ip.
